## Iris master

**Changes in `proofmode`:**

* The proofmode now preserves user-supplied names for existentials when using
  `iDestruct ... as (?) "..."`. This is backwards-incompatible if you were
  relying on the previous automatic names (which were always "H", possibly
  freshened). It also requires some changes if you were implementing `IntoExist`
  yourself, since the typeclass now forwards names. If your instance transforms
  one `IntoExist` into another, you can generally just forward the name from the
  premise.

* Invariants (`inv N P`) are more flexible, now also supporting splitting
  and merging of invariants with respect to separating conjunction.
* Performance of the proofmode for BIs constructed on top of other BIs (e.g.,
  `monPred`) was greatly improved, leading to up to 70% speedup in individual
  files. As part of this refactoring, the proofmode can now also be instantiated

  structure, and still support reasoning about ▷.
* The proof mode now provides experimental support for naming pure facts in
  intro patterns.  See

* Iris now provides official ASCII notation. We still recommend using the
  Unicode notation for better consistency and interoperability with other Iris
  libraries, but provide ASCII notation for when Unicode is not an option.
* We removed several coercions, fixing "ambiguous coercion path" warnings and
  solving some readability issues.
* Coq 8.10, 8.11, and 8.12 are newly supported by this release, and Coq 8.7 and
  8.8 are no longer supported.

* Remove global `Open Scope Z_scope` from `heap_lang.lang`, and leave it up to
  reverse dependencies if they want to `Open Scope Z_scope` or not.
* Fix all binary operators performing pointer arithmetic (instead of just the
  dedicated `OffsetOp` operator doing that).
* Rename `heap_lang.lifting` to `heap_lang.primitive_laws`. There now also
  exists `heap_lang.derived_laws`.
* Make lemma names for `fill` more consistent
  - Use the `_inv` suffix for the the backwards directions:
   `reducible_fill``reducible_fill_inv`,
   `reducible_no_obs_fill``reducible_no_obs_fill_inv`,
   `not_stuck_fill``not_stuck_fill_inv`.
  - Use the non-`_inv` names (that freed up) for the forwards directions:
   `reducible_fill`, `reducible_no_obs_fill`, `irreducible_fill_inv`.
* Remove namespace `N` from `is_lock`.

  invariant.  See `iris.base_logic.lib.gen_inv_heap` for details.

  invariant immediately, not just when the invariant is closed again.)

* Flatten the BI hierarchy by merging the `bi` and `sbi` canonical structures.
  This gives significant performance benefits on developments that construct BIs
  from BIs (e.g., use `monPred`). For, example it gives a performance gain of 37%
  overall on lambdarust-weak, with improvements for individual files up to 72%,
  see Iris issue #303. The concrete changes are as follows:
  + The `sbi` canonical structure has been removed.
  + The `bi` canonical structure contains the later modality. It does not
    require the later modality to be contractive or to satisfy the Löb rule, so
    we provide a smart constructor `bi_later_mixin_id` to get the later axioms
    "for free" if later is defined to be the identity function.
  + There is a separate class `BiLöb`, and a "free" instance of that class if
    the later modality is contractive. A `BiLöb` instance is required for the
    `iLöb` tactic, and for timeless instances of implication and wand.
  + There is a separate type class `BiInternalEq` for BIs with a notion of
    internal equality (internal equality was part of `sbi`). An instance of this
    class is needed for the `iRewrite` tactic, and the various lemmas about
    internal equality.
  + The class `SbiEmbed` has been removed and been replaced by classes
    `BiEmbedLater` and `BiEmbedInternalEq`.
  + The class `BiPlainly` has been generalized to BIs without internal equality.
    As a consequence, there is a separate class `BiPropExt` for BIs with
    propositional extensionality (i.e., `■ (P ∗-∗ Q) ⊢ P ≡ Q`).
  + The class `BiEmbedPlainly` is a bi-entailment (i.e., `⎡■ P⎤ ⊣⊢ ■ ⎡P⎤`
    instead of `■ ⎡P⎤ ⊢ ⎡■ P⎤`) as it has been generalized to BIs without a
    internal equality. In the past, the left-to-right direction was obtained for
    "free" using the rules of internal equality.

* Remove coercion from `iProp` (and other MoSeL propositions) to `Prop`.
  Instead, use the new unary notation `⊢ P`, or `⊢@{PROP} P` if the proposition
  type cannot be inferred. This also means that `%I` should not be necessary any
  more when stating lemmas, as `P` above is automatically parsed in scope `%I`.

* Some improvements to the `bi/lib/core` construction:
  + Rename `coreP_wand` into `coreP_entails` since it does not involve wands.
  + Generalize `coreP_entails` to non-affine BIs, and prove more convenient
    version `coreP_entails'` for `coreP P` with `P` affine.
  + Add instance `coreP_affine P : Affine P → Affine (coreP P)` and
    lemma `coreP_wand P Q : <affine> ■ (P -∗ Q) -∗ coreP P -∗ coreP Q`.
* Remove notation for 3-mask step-taking updates, and made 2-mask notation less
  confusing by distinguishing it better from mask-changing updates.
  Old: `|={Eo,Ei}▷=> P`. New: `|={Eo}[Ei]▷=> P`.
  Here, `Eo` is the "outer mask" (used at the beginning and end) and `Ei` the
  "inner mask" (used around the ▷ in the middle).
  As part of this, the lemmas about the 3-mask variant were changed to be about
  the 2-mask variant instead, and `step_fupd_mask_mono` now also has a more
  consistent argument order for its masks.

* Add a counterexample showing that sufficiently powerful cancellable invariants
  with a linear token subvert the linearity guarantee (see
  `bi.lib.counterexmples` for details).
* Redefine invariants as "semantic invariants" so that they support
  splitting and other forms of weakening.
* Add lemmas `inv_combine` and `inv_combine_dup_l` for combining invariants.
* Add the type `siProp` of "plain" step-indexed propositions, together with
  basic proofmode support.

* New ASCII versions of Iris notations. These are marked parsing only and
  can be made available using `Require Import iris.bi.ascii`. The new
  notations are (notations marked [†] are disambiguated using notation scopes):
  - entailment: `|-` for `⊢` and `-|-` for `⊣⊢`
  - logic[†]: `->` for `→`, `/\\` for `∧`, `\\/` for `∨`, and `<->` for `↔`
  - quantifiers[†]: `forall` for `∀` and `exists` for `∃`
  - separation logic: `**` for `∗`, `-*` for `-∗`, and `*-*` for `∗-∗`
  - step indexing: `|>` for `▷`
  - modalities: `<#>` for `□` and `<except_0>` for `◇`
  - most derived notations can be computed from previous notations using the
    substitutions above, e.g. replace `∗` with `*` and `▷` with `|>`. Examples
    include the following:
    - `|={E1,E2}=* P` for `|={E1,E2}=∗`
    - `P ={E}=* Q` for `P ={E}=∗ Q`
    - `P ={E1,E2}=* Q` for `P ={E1,E2}=∗ Q`

* Seal the definitions of `big_opS`, `big_opMS`, `big_opM` and `big_sepM2`
  to prevent undesired simplification.

**Changes in `proofmode`:**

* Make use of `notypeclasses refine` in the implementation of `iPoseProof` and
  `iAssumption`, see <https://gitlab.mpi-sws.org/iris/iris/merge_requests/329>.
  This has two consequences:
  1. Coq's "new" unification algorithm (the one in `refine`, not the "old" one
     in `apply`) is used more often by the proof mode tactics.
  2. Due to the use of `notypeclasses refine`, TC constraints are solved less
     eagerly, see <https://github.com/coq/coq/issues/6583>.
  In order to port your development, it is often needed to instantiate evars
  explicitly (since TC search is performed less eagerly), and in few cases it is
  needed to unfold definitions explicitly (due to new unification algorithm
  behaving differently).
* Strengthen the tactics `iDestruct`, `iPoseProof`, and `iAssert`:
  - They succeed in certain cases where they used to fail.
  - They keep certain hypotheses in the intuitionistic context, where they were
    moved to the spatial context before.
  The latter can lead to stronger proof mode contexts, and therefore to
  backwards incompatibility. This can usually be fixed by manually clearing some
  hypotheses. A more detailed description of the changes can be found in
  <https://gitlab.mpi-sws.org/iris/iris/merge_requests/341>.

  `agree` instead).

  Coq goal `big star of context ⊢ proof mode goal`.

* Add new introduction pattern `-# pat` that moves a hypothesis from the
  intuitionistic context to the spatial context.
* The tactic `iAssumption` also recognizes assumptions `⊢ P` in the Coq context.
* Better support for telescopes in the proof mode, i.e., all tactics should
  recognize and distribute telescopes now.
* The proof mode now supports names for pure facts in intro patterns. Support
  requires implementing `string_to_ident`. Without this tactic such patterns
  will fail. We provide one implementation using Ltac2 which works with Coq 8.11
  and can be installed with opam; see
  [iris/string-ident](https://gitlab.mpi-sws.org/iris/string-ident) for details.

  STS RA.
* The functions `{o,r,ur}Functor_diag` are no longer coercions, and renamed into

  `{o,r,ur}Functor_apply` to better match their intent. This fixes "ambiguous

The highlight of this release is the completely re-engineered interactive proof
mode.  Not only did many tactics become more powerful; the entire proof mode can
now be used not just for Iris but also for other separation logics satisfying

Beyond that, the Iris program logic gained the ability to reason about
potentially stuck programs, and a significantly strengthened adequacy theorem
that unifies the three previously separately presented theorems.  There are now
also Hoare triples for total program correctness (but with very limited support
for invariants) and logical atomicity.

And finally, our example language HeapLang was made more realistic
(Compare-and-set got replaced by compare-exchange and limited to only compare
values that can actually be compared atomically) and more powerful, with added
support for arrays and prophecy variables.

Further details are given in the changelog below.

**Changes in the theory of Iris itself:**

365

366
* Change in the definition of WP, so that there is a fancy update between
Jacques-Henri Jourdan's avatar

367
368
  the quantification over the next states and the later modality. This makes it
  possible to prove more powerful lifting lemmas: The new versions feature an
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
369
  "update that takes a step".
370
371
372
* Add weakest preconditions for total program correctness.
* "(Potentially) stuck" weakest preconditions and the "plainly modality" are no
  longer considered experimental.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
373
* Add the notion of an "observation" to the language interface, so that
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
374
375
  every reduction step can optionally be marked with an event, and an execution
  trace has a matching list of events.  Change WP so that it is told the entire
376
  future trace of observations from the beginning.
Ralf Jung's avatar

377
* The Löb rule is now a derived rule; it follows from later-intro, later

379
  being contractive and the fact that we can take fixpoints of contractive
  functions.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
380
* Add atomic updates and logically atomic triples, including tactic support.
Ralf Jung's avatar

381
  See `heap_lang/lib/increment.v` for an example.
382
383
384
* Extend the state interpretation with a natural number that keeps track of
  the number of forked-off threads, and have a global fixed proposition that
  describes the postcondition of each forked-off thread (instead of it being
Robbert Krebbers's avatar
Robbert Krebbers committed
385
  `True`).
386
387
388
* A stronger adequacy statement for weakest preconditions that involves
  the final state, the post-condition of forked-off threads, and also applies if
  the main-thread has not terminated.
389
390
391
* The user-chosen functor used to instantiate the Iris logic now goes from
  COFEs to Cameras (it was OFEs to Cameras).

401
* CAS (compare-and-set) got replaced by CmpXchg (compare-exchange).  The
  difference is that CmpXchg returns a pair consisting of the old value and a
  boolean indicating whether the comparison was successful and hence the
  exchange happened.  CAS can be obtained by simply projecting to the second
  component, but also providing the old value more closely models the primitive
  typically provided in systems languages (C, C++, Rust).
  The comparison by this operation also got weakened to be efficiently
  implementable: CmpXchg may only be used to compare "unboxed" values that can
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
402
403
404
405
406
  be represented in a single machine word. It is sufficient if one of the two
  compared values is unboxed.
* For consistency, the restrictions CmpXchg imposes on comparison also apply to
  the `=` binary operator. This also fixes the long-standing problem that that
  operator allowed compared closures with each other.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
407
408
* Implement prophecy variables using the new support for "observations". The
  erasure theorem (showing that prophecy variables do not alter program

409
  behavior) can be found [in the iris/examples repository][prophecy-erasure].

* heap_lang now uses right-to-left evaluation order. This makes it

412
* heap_lang values are now injected in heap_lang expressions via a specific

  infrastructure around the language. In particular, this allow us to get rid

  "administrative" reductions in the operational semantics of the language.

  (continuously allocated regions of memory).

  features:
  - The proof mode can now be used with logics derived from Iris (like iGPS),
    with non-step-indexed logics and even with non-affine (i.e., linear) logics.
  - `iModIntro` is more flexible and more powerful, it now also subsumes
    `iNext` and `iAlways`.
  - General infrastructure for deriving a logic for monotone predicates over

434
    Developments instantiating the proof mode typeclasses may need significant
Robbert Krebbers's avatar
Robbert Krebbers committed
435
436
    changes.  For developments just using the proof mode tactics, porting should
    not be too much effort.  Notable things to port are:
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
437
438
439
440
441
  - All the BI laws moved from the `uPred` module to the `bi` module.  For
    example, `uPred.later_equivI` became `bi.later_equivI`.
  - Big-ops are automatically imported, imports of `iris.base_logic.big_op` have
    to be removed.
  - The ⊢ notation can sometimes infer different (but convertible) terms when
Robbert Krebbers's avatar
Robbert Krebbers committed
442
    searching for the BI to use, which (due to Coq limitations) can lead to
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
443
444
445
446
    failing rewrites, in particular when rewriting at function types.
* The `iInv` tactic can now be used without the second argument (the name for
  the closing update).  It will then instead add the obligation to close the
  invariant to the goal.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
447
448
* The new `iEval` tactic can be used to execute a simplification or rewriting
  tactic on some specific part(s) of the proofmode goal.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
449
450
* Added support for defining derived connectives involving n-ary binders using
  telescopes.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
451
452
453
* The proof mode now more consistently "prettifies" the goal after each tactic.
  Prettification also simplifies some BI connectives, like conditional
  modalities and telescope quantifiers.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
454
* Improved pretty-printing of Iris connectives (in particular WP and fancy
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
455
456
457
  updates) when Coq has to line-wrap the output.  This goes hand-in-hand with an
  improved test suite that also tests pretty-printing.
* Added a `gmultiset` RA.
458
* Rename `timelessP``timeless` (projection of the `Timeless` class)
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
459
460
* The CMRA axiom `cmra_extend` is now stated in `Type`, using `sigT` instead of
  in `Prop` using `exists`. This makes it possible to define the function space
Jacques-Henri Jourdan's avatar
Jacques-Henri Jourdan committed
461
  CMRA even for an infinite domain.
Robbert Krebbers's avatar
Robbert Krebbers committed
462
463
464
465
466
* Rename proof mode type classes for laters:
  - `IntoLaterN``MaybeIntoLaterN` (this one _may_ strip a later)
  - `IntoLaterN'``IntoLaterN` (this one _should_ strip a later)
  - `IntoLaterNEnv``MaybeIntoLaterNEnv`
  - `IntoLaterNEnvs``MaybeIntoLaterNEnvs`
467
468
* Rename:
  - `frag_auth_op``frac_auth_frag_op`
469
470
471
  - `cmra_opM_assoc``cmra_op_opM_assoc`
  - `cmra_opM_assoc_L``cmra_op_opM_assoc_L`
  - `cmra_opM_assoc'``cmra_opM_opM_assoc`
Robbert Krebbers's avatar
Robbert Krebbers committed
472
* `namespaces` has been moved to std++.
473
474
* Changed `IntoVal` to be directly usable for rewriting `e` into `of_val v`, and
  changed `AsVal` to be usable for rewriting via the `[v <-]` destruct pattern.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
475
* `wp_fork` is now written in curried form.
476
* `PureExec`/`wp_pure` now supports taking multiple steps at once.
Jacques-Henri Jourdan's avatar
Jacques-Henri Jourdan committed
477
478
479
* A new tactic, `wp_pures`, executes as many pure steps as possible, excluding
  steps that would require unlocking subterms. Every impure wp_ tactic executes
  this tactic before doing anything else.
Dan Frumin's avatar
Dan Frumin committed
480
* Add `big_sepM_insert_acc`.
481
482
483
484
* Add big separating conjunctions that operate on pairs of lists (`big_sepL2`)
  and on pairs of maps (`big_sepM2`). In the former case the lists are required
  to have the same length, and in the latter case the maps are required to
  have the same domains.
Dan Frumin's avatar
Dan Frumin committed
485
486
487
* The `_strong` lemmas (e.g. `own_alloc_strong`) work for all infinite
  sets, instead of just for cofinite sets. The versions with cofinite
  sets have been renamed to use the `_cofinite` suffix.
Robbert Krebbers's avatar
Robbert Krebbers committed
488
489
490
* Remove locked value lambdas. The value scope notations `rec: f x := e` and
  `(λ: x, e)` no longer add a `locked`. Instead, we made the `wp_` tactics
  smarter to no longer unfold lambdas/recs that occur behind definitions.
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
491
* Export the fact that `iPreProp` is a COFE.
492
493
494
495
496
497
498
* The CMRA `auth` now can have fractional authoritative parts. So now `auth` has
  3 types of elements: the fractional authoritative `●{q} a`, the full
  authoritative `● a ≡ ●{1} a`, and the non-authoritative `◯ a`. Updates are
  only possible with the full authoritative element `● a`, while fractional
  authoritative elements have agreement: `✓ (●{p} a ⋅ ●{q} b) ⇒ a ≡ b`. As a
  consequence, `auth` is no longer a COFE and does not preserve Leibniz
  equality.
499
500
* Add a COFE construction (and functor) on dependent pairs `sigTO`, dual to
  `discrete_funO`.

506
* Rename in `auth`:
  - Use `auth_auth_proj`/`auth_frag_proj` for the projections of `auth`:
    `authoritative``auth_auth_proj` and `auth_own``auth_frag_proj`.
  - Use `auth_auth` and `auth_frag` for the injections into authoritative
    elements and non-authoritative elements respectively.
  - Lemmas for the projections and injections are renamed accordingly.

    + `authoritative_validN``auth_auth_proj_validN`
    + `auth_own_validN``auth_frag_proj_validN`
    + `auth_auth_valid` was not renamed because it was already used for the
      authoritative injection.

  - `auth_valid_discrete_2``auth_both_valid`

515
516
* Add the camera `ufrac` for unbounded fractions (i.e. without fractions that
  can be `> 1`) and the camera `ufrac_auth` for a variant of the authoritative
  fractional camera (`frac_auth`) with unbounded fractions.
517
518
* Changed `frac_auth` notation from `●!`/`◯!` to `●F`/`◯F`. sed script:
  `s/◯!/◯F/g; s/●!/●F/g;`.
519
520
* Lemma `prop_ext` works in both directions; its default direction is the
  opposite of what it used to be.
521
* Make direction of `f_op` rewrite lemmas more consistent: Flip `pair_op`,

* Rename lemmas `fupd_big_sep{L,M,S,MS}` into `big_sep{L,M,S,MS}_fupd` to be
  consistent with other such big op lemmas. Also add such lemmas for `bupd`.
526

* [Experimental feature] Support verifying code that might get stuck by
  distinguishing "non-stuck" vs. "(potentially) stuck" weakest
  preconditions. (See [Swasey et al., OOPSLA '17] for examples.) The non-stuck
  `WP e @ E {{ Φ }}` ensures that, as `e` runs, it does not get stuck. The stuck
  `WP e @ E ?{{ Φ }}` ensures that, as usual, all invariants are preserved while
  `e` runs, but it permits execution to get stuck. The former implies the
  latter. The full judgment is `WP e @ s; E {{ Φ }}`, where non-stuck WP uses
  *stuckness bit* `s = NotStuck` while stuck WP uses `s = MaybeStuck`.

  - Add fetch-and-add (`FAA`) operation.
  - Add syntax for all Coq's binary operations on `Z`.
* Generalize `saved_prop` to let the user choose the location of the type-level
  later.  Rename the general form to `saved_anything`.  Provide `saved_prop` and
  `saved_pred` as special cases.
* Improved big operators:
  + They are no longer tied to cameras, but work on any monoid

    more definitional equalities.

* Fix a bunch of consistency issues in the proof mode, and make it overall more
  usable.  In particular:

669
670
671
672
673
674
675
  - All proof mode tactics start the proof mode if necessary; `iStartProof` is
    no longer needed and should only be used for building custom proof mode
    tactics.
  - Change in the grammar of specialization patterns: `>[...]` -> `[> ...]`
  - Various new specification patterns for `done` and framing.
  - There is common machinery for symbolic execution of pure reductions. This
    is provided by the type classes `PureExec` and `IntoVal`.
  - There is a new connective `tc_opaque`, which can be used to make definitions
    opaque for type classes, and thus opaque for most tactics of the proof
    mode.

  - Define Many missing type class instances for distributing connectives.
  - Implement the tactics `iIntros (?)` and `iIntros "!#"` (i.e. `iAlways`)
    using type classes. This makes them more generic, e.g., `iIntros (?)` also
    works when the universal quantifier is below a modality, and `iAlways` also
    works for the plainness modality.  A breaking change, however, is that these
    tactics now no longer work when the universal quantifier or modality is
    behind a type class opaque definition.  Furthermore, this can change the
    name of anonymous identifiers introduced with the "%" pattern.

* Define the generic `fill` operation of the `ectxi_language` construct in terms
  of a left fold instead of a right fold. This gives rise to more definitional
  equalities.

* The language hierarchy (`language`, `ectx_language`, `ectxi_language`) is now
  fully formalized using canonical structures instead of using a mixture of
  type classes and canonical structures. Also, it now uses explicit mixins. The
  file `program_logic/ectxi_language` contains some documentation on how to
  setup Iris for your language.

* Restore the original, stronger notion of atomicity alongside the weaker
  notion. These are `Atomic a e` where the stuckness bit `s` indicates whether
695
696
  expression `e` is weakly (`a = WeaklyAtomic`) or strongly
  (`a = StronglyAtomic`) atomic.
697

699

* Various improvements to `solve_ndisj`.
* Use `Hint Mode` to prevent Coq from making arbitrary guesses in the presence
  of evars, which often led to divergence. There are a few places where type
  annotations are now needed.
701
* The rules `internal_eq_rewrite` and `internal_eq_rewrite_contractive` are now

702
  stated in the logic, i.e., they are `iApply`-friendly.

* There now is a deprecation process.  The modules `*.deprecated` contain
  deprecated notations and definitions that are provided for backwards
  compatibility and will be removed in a future version of Iris.

* View shifts are radically simplified to just internalize frame-preserving
710
  updates.  Weakestpre is defined inside the logic, and invariants and view

Ralf Jung committed
711
  shifts with masks are also coded up inside Iris.  Adequacy of weakestpre is
712
  proven in the logic. The old ownership of the entire physical state is
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
713
714
  replaced by a user-selected predicate over physical state that is maintained
  by weakestpre.
715
* Use OFEs instead of COFEs everywhere.  COFEs are only used for solving the
716
717
  recursive domain equation.  As a consequence, CMRAs no longer need a proof of
  completeness.  (The old `cofeT` is provided by `algebra.deprecated`.)
718
* Implement a new agreement construction.  Unlike the old one, this one
719
720
  preserves discreteness.  dec_agree is thus no longer needed and has been moved
  to algebra.deprecated.
721
722
723
* Renaming and moving things around: uPred and the rest of the base logic are in
  `base_logic`, while `program_logic` is for everything involving the general
  Iris notion of a language.
724
725
726
727
* Renaming in prelude.list: Rename `prefix_of` -> `prefix` and `suffix_of` ->
  `suffix` in lemma names, but keep notation ``l1 `prefix_of` l2`` and ``l1
  `suffix_of` l2``.  `` l1 `sublist` l2`` becomes ``l1 `sublist_of` l2``. Rename
  `contains` -> `submseteq` and change `` l1 `contains` l2`` to ``l1 ⊆+ l2``.

* Slightly weaker notion of atomicity: an expression is atomic if it reduces in
  one step to something that does not reduce further.
* Changed notation for embedding Coq assertions into Iris.  The new notation is
731
  ⌜φ⌝.  Also removed `=` and `⊥` from the Iris scope.  (The old notations are
Ralf Jung's avatar
Ralf Jung committed
732
  provided in `base_logic.deprecated`.)
733
* Up-closure of namespaces is now a notation (↑) instead of a coercion.
734
735
* With invariants and the physical state being handled in the logic, there is no
  longer any reason to demand the CMRA unit to be discrete.

736
* The language can now fork off multiple threads at once.
737
738
* Local Updates (for the authoritative monoid) are now a 4-way relation with
  syntax-directed lemmas proving them.

* [heap_lang] No longer use dependent types for expressions.  Instead, values
  carry a proof of closedness.  Substitution, closedness and value-ness proofs
  are performed by computation after reflecting into a term langauge that knows
  about values and closed expressions.
746
747
* [program_logic/language] The language does not define its own "atomic"
  predicate.  Instead, atomicity is defined as reducing in one step to a value.

* [program_logic] Due to a lack of maintenance and usefulness, lifting lemmas
  for Hoare triples are removed.
